Language[edit]

Why site the single study by Ramachandran? I'm sure the results are interesting, but they do not represent the large literature on this topic. PubMed lists 622 studies. Genetral reviews would be more appropriate. For example, Price (2009,Annuals of the NY Academy of Sciences, 119:62-88) reviewed the results of 100 fMRI studies and concluded that the left angular gyrus is activated during semantic retrieval. Dronkers et al (2004,Cognition, 92: 145-177) summarize the results of a large series of lesion patients showing that the angular gyrus is one of several areas involved in language comprehension. Zamarian et al. (2009, Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews, 33: 909-925) review evidence that the left angular gyrus is activated with the acquisition of competence in arithmetic and other cognitive domains, Skeptics comments (talk) 15:38, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Editing This Page[edit]

Hi, I just wanted to let anyone interested know that I will be editing this page for a course I am taking APS Wikipedia Initiative. Ifi anyone has thoughts about this page, I'd be happy to discuss them with you.
